Contract employee loved working at the Arlington office
I had a great experience working as a contract/hourly employee. I was hired by an agency to work at the Ballston location. Great staff and office environment. I was included in the virtual staff/ marketing meetings. I reported to a great Director and Senior Manager there. I wish that I could have stayed on longer, but I needed a full time job with benefits. I left after 8 months to start working at a nonprofit. I miss my former colleagues at ETRADE.

For the most part, senior managers have been at the company the majority of their careers.
Job happiness is almost exclusively dependent on your manager. In more than 15 years, I've worked for good, bad and mediocre bosses. When I reported to good managers, I was happy. Currently, I report to a dolt and my job is miserable.

A nice place to work. Ergonomically set work environment
I worked as a consultant (contractor) through Amalga Systems, Inc. E*Trade was highly secured work environment. I had opportunity to evaluated testing controls in the footprint in order to determine desired control type needed for implementation.

Average place to work
It just depends on where you work at the company, my overall experience was not good. They did not have flexible work hours, no remote work options. Overall experience was ok

Disruptive constantly shifting management objectives
Decisions made change constantly. Hard to define priorities and gain stability in your performance. Many of the employees here are very talented but upper management makes decisions without consulting to see what the down chain effects will be.

Learn to Prioritize
The new technology work comes in fast. Every day presents new opportunities and issues. They add to your backlog and you continually reassess and reprioritize. You have to stay focused to stay on top of it all. You get things done, but it doesn't always look like progress was made.

Experience
E*Trade provides opportunity to gain relevant transferable experience. The environment and culture is fast-paced and can be challenging; however, hard work is rewarded and the compensation is fair. I've spent 12.5 years with E*Trade and have developed lifelong relationships with my several of my colleagues.

Great Benifits, Terrible Culture
Etrade is very competitive with their salary but has a bad culture. Most Senior Management is set in their ways and wont allow teleworking. They are also not good about promoting internally. Some departments are cut throats and people will do anything they can to throw other people under the bus to make management overlook their shortcomings.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Bad Culture

good place to learn but poor work life balance
The company has high turnover. It has a lot of initiatives but not enough resources and poor priorities. However, it is a good place to learn and provide plenty of opportunities for someone who just graduates from college and/or someone who would like to move up fast, similar to a big 4 firm environment.
